Promote your business with Chelmsford’s best attended networking group

What a great event!  Thank you very much to everyone who attended Friends of City on 19 September.  Over 90 people joined us to network and meet new business contacts over lunch.

After 4 really popular meetings, the grapevine is doing it’s work and lots of new guests are joining us every time.  So, before you ask “when is the next one?” here are all the details

So what do you need to know?

We get together once a month at Chelmsford City FC (Melbourne Park, Salerno Way, Chelmsford, Essex, CM1 2EH), alternating between breakfast and lunchtime meetings.  The next event is at breakfast on Thursday 25 October from 7am-9am.  The meetings are free to attend – if you like us and you’d like to join up and support the club there is a great membership package which includes advertising space and a copy of the attendance list, but that’s up to you.  There’s plenty of free parking and food, tea and coffee is provided free of charge.  How’s that for great value?

The meetings are very informal – there are no bells or whistles and you don’t need to give a 60 second speech.  We have already taken lots of bookings, so we can guarantee you will meet a real mix of businesses – large and small.  This is a great opportunity to make new contacts and catch up with old friends in a relaxed environment.  Minal Backhouse, our MD will give a short presentation on a current topic of interest, so you’ll have 5 minutes’ break to eat your breakfast!

If you’d like to come along

Either drop our Business Development Manager Aaron Desmond an email at:

[email protected]

Or give him a call on 01245 893404 or 07802 807197.

To keep things fair, we only allow up to 3 businesses from any trade or profession to attend, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

If you can’t attend this time

The meeting after next will be the Business Expo on Thursday 29 November from 12pm-3pm.  Members of Friends of City have the opportunity to take a free stand at the Expo to promote their business, and we will be holding free employment law and debt recovery advice clinics during the course of the afternoon

If you contact Aaron now, he will make sure you get a reminder.

Last but not least, if you know someone you think might be interested then please feel free to pass the details on – the bigger the group, the more new contacts we all make and everyone’s a winner.

We look forward to seeing you there!
